The Replacements documentary gets a DVD release date; break out the whiskey and crushed dreams!

Transplanted Minnesotans weeping into a pile of flannel, Paul Wellstone bumper stickers, and whiskey, take note! (And any other fans of straight-up-good-old-fashioned punk rock music.) You know that Replacements documentary your mom kept sending you newspaper clippings about? That documentary that was blowing up the festival circuit? Well, now that very documentary, Color Me Obsessed, is now being released on DVD, thanks to MVD Entertainment Group. So pick up one of the 35 plaid shirts balled up on your floor, tear the Wellstone bumper sticker off your sobbing mouth, and dry your booze-streaked eyes, because you’re gonna need those peepers to shove Color Me Obsessed into your DVD player and you’re gonna need that mouth to sing along.

Color Me Obsessed includes interviews with Replacements-lovin’ musicians like Colin Meloy, Tommy Ramone, Grant Hart, Patrick Stickles, and (HOLD THE PHONE!) Craig Finn, plus noted music critic types Robert Christgau and Greg Kot. The doc also features interviews with Hollywood fans Dave Foley, Tom Arnold, and George Wendt. Plus interviews with just straight-up normal fans, whether they’ve seen the band three times or 300. The DVD includes 19 deleted scenes, complete interviews, and various behind-the-scenes moments. You can check out the trailer at Prefix. Color Me Obsessed drops November 20.
